Street Cats Rescue is a non- profit organization with registered charity status serving Simcoe County and surrounding areas. They are staffed 100% by volunteers, receive no government funding and rely solely on fundraising, donations and community support to continue their work. All money raised goes directly back to the care and comfort of the cats i.e. veterinary bills, rent, heat, hydro, food, supplies, etc.

Street Cats Rescue has a “no kill” policy. They advocate humane euthanasia only for terminally ill animals and/or animals where quality of life has been severely compromised with no hope of improvement.

Street Cats consists of physical shelter as well as a large network of foster homes. In both areas they utilize techniques and protocols that keep illness and stress levels to a minimum. They strive to get to know each cat’s unique personality which makes finding the right adoptive home that much easier. All cats are vet checked, treated for parasites and illness as needed. Prior to adoption each cat is vaccinated, fixed and microchipped. They advocate paediatric spay/neuter so even kittens are fixed prior to adoption.
